I just got a new toy the other day...     Glock 22 .40 S&W and a safariland ALS holster...    HOLY CRAP!!!  It's soooooooo much better than the serpa...  WOW is it better than the serpa.  I will say, I agree that the serpa seems more secure for the paddle, but the draw is 1000x better with the ALS...    only thing I'm not liking is the cant of the holster..  but that actually might be more the angle of the glock handle.

I also think it's a lot less obvious as to how it works if anyone happened to try to grab it, additionally, it doesn't have the opportunity for jamming like the serpa due to the release placement.

By entering the phrase "als holster" into the google search window The following information was resultant:

http://www.google.com/search?q=als+holster&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

I often times will utilize a search engine on the internet to obtain information about subject matter that I am interested in.

Haha patrick...    I love being a smartass about that...       You should use this website for shaming people in the future...  :)

http://lmgtfy.com/?q=safariland+als+holster     (let me google that for you)


But to answer your question OCDetroit (I don't mind the question, but it's fun to razz people regardless) 

I got my holster from a local police equipment dealer...  $45     

There's an online place that I found them for possibly cheaper... but I'm not sure they have them in stock...    use this link:    http://www.opticsplanet.net/safariland-model-6377-selection.html   And scroll down.. there are several options for Glock19.... especially at the end of the "glock section"....   

Their ordering options are confusing to me though...    the holsters are like $29... but then they have a "paddle only" option  (adds $15) which I'm not sure what that is..  so I don't know if you have to order that as well to get the paddle, or if the original $29 holster comes with belt loops and paddle...

I can understand the infatuation with plastic guns, but not with the plastic holsters. They will destroy even the most durable of finishes in a very short time. A quality leather holster will not do it nearly as rapidly or severely. And there are leather retention holsters available that will provide a good level of security.

But then, I carry Mexican practically all the time. Even less holster wear.

The ALS has suede lining... so I don't expect it to mar too bad...     but either way, I"m not trying to win a fashion contest here..   as long as it still goes *BANG then I'm good with scratches in the finish...     I would think ANY frequent carry sidearm would show signs of wear.

I hope you don't shoot off your twig and berries.   :D

Didn't know about suede on ALS.

Not about fashion... the finish is not put on a firearm for fashion.

I go for the stainless (can't believe i said thet word) versions any more for that reason.

I don't carry Mexican with my Glock.  :o

Yeah, I mean it's not like cushy padding... but I certainly think it will help...


The sidearm i carry in the serpa is stainless, so I"m not terribly worried about it....
